, participating in a march on washington to a prominent historian and editor martin luther king jr.'s papers. it's part of three days of "book tv" this weekend. on monday. washington journal continues. host: we're back with the house democrat -- with the top democrat on the house ways and means committee, sander levin. you said you're not confident that tax reform will happen in 2013. guest: because so much is happening. the way the republicans are threatening to use the debt ceiling delays everything and it puts the perspective in the wrong place. i think it is a serious mistake for them to even think about that. you were talking earlier about the articles this morning saying how dangerous it is to use the debt ceiling to essentially put the full faith and credit of this country in real jeopardy. so i very concerned about the consequences of doing that or even threatening to do it immediately and, also, it really shifts the focus, instead of it being on the debt ceiling, it should be elsewhere, including tax reform. host: tax reform does not happen in 2013. guest: it may not happen. host: w

eulogized and martyred heroes by dr. martin luther king and it is fitting and proper that this congress recognize the historic significance of their life. ironically, they were studying about the love and forgiveness of god at the time of their death. let us be mindful that despite this act of violence and the killing of a young 16-year-old black boy and 14-year-old black boy the same day, the civil rights leaders were committed to nonviolence and they kept true to that commitment. despite the violence done to them, they showed forgiveness against the people and our colleague, john lewis, and others helped us avoid by their commitment to nonviolence the calamities and replaying of grievances that destroyed the fabric of many other countries. to them we should be eternally grateful. in closing, let this legislation bring us together, and i commend your support for it and i ask for your co-sponsorship. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentlelady from california seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and ext
